‘Let’s Go Brandon’ rapper Bryson Gray’s banned anti-Biden song is No. 1
Cover your ears, President Biden!
A controversial new rap song mocking the leader of the free world has rocketed to the top of the iTunes charts, booting Adele from the No. 1 spot — even after getting banned on YouTube and Instagram for spreading “harmful false information.”
“Let’s Go Brandon,” released last week by avowed President Donald Trump supporter Bryson Gray, has been sitting at No. 1 since Sunday, when it refused to fulfill the lyrical request of Adele’s much-hyped comeback single “Easy On Me.” (The Brit pop diva sits at No. 3 behind a random redux of Gray’s hit song by YouTube rapper Loza Alexander.)
The 30-year-old rapper believes his single shot to No. 1 because of the YouTube ban.
“If you read guidelines for social media sites now, the guidelines themselves are against conservatism. You literally can’t have a conservative opinion,” Gray told The Post on Wednesday. “Like I can’t say there are only two genders, or I can’t call somebody by what they are. I have to be delusional with them.”
A defiant Gray continued: “Cancel culture doesn’t work anymore. It only works on people who are scared … all it does is help me out. Thanks, YouTube!”
The North Carolina-born musician composed his song earlier this month in response to NBC’s coverage of a NASCAR race in Alabama on Oct. 2. During that event, crowds were heard chanting, “F–k Joe Biden,” but an NBC anchor insisted they were actually chanting, “Let’s go, Brandon,” in reference to a win by race car driver Brandon Brown.
The incident began trending on Twitter, with conservatives claiming NBC was involved in a cover-up by refusing to allow any criticism of the president on their network.
Gray soon got to work on his rap, which features the lyrics: “Media lyin’, ignore all the cryin’/ They buildin’ back better, but only the Taliban/ Pilots on strike, but to Joe, it’s irrelevant/ Open the border, lose all the order.”
Other lines include: “Divide us up so they know that we never win/ But we united, we here in the stadiums/ Everyone chantin’ it, CNN slanderin’/ Biden collapsin’ and Democrats stealin’ it.”
The song also calls into question the president’s mental state with the lyrics: “The only play that Joe can execute is a fumble/ Think we all know he’s out to lunch, that dude went campin.’ “
The rap features musicians Tyson James and Chandler Crump on backing vocals.
Meanwhile, the music video for “Let’s Go Brandon” features the rapper clad in a red Make America Great Again bucket hat and a T-shirt emblazoned with the slogan “Impeach Biden.” In several scenes, he also clutches an automatic weapon.
Gray’s fans were left outraged earlier this week when the clip was banned on YouTube and Instagram.
Instagram says the song violates community guidelines for sharing “harmful false information” about the current COVID-19 pandemic, as it features the lines “Pandemic ain’t real, they just planned it” and “Biden said the jab stop the spread, it was lies.”
The song is still available on the YouTube Music offshoot, but fans have flooded iTunes, purchasing the song and sending it soaring to the top of the charts. Over the weekend, the song outsold Adele’s huge new track, her first new music in six years.
Speaking about his YouTube ban, Gray told The Post: “If you’re going to ban people, you’ve got to remain consistent. There’s rap songs out there about killing people. On YouTube you can talk about murder, you can talk about sex, you can talk about whatever you want, but I can’t simply question the narrative or I’ll get banned. When did they start banning art?”
Gray appeared on Glenn Beck’s radio show Tuesday to discuss his incendiary new track, similarly saying people on the left were allowed to say whatever they wanted without fear of being censored.
“They can literally do whatever they want,” said Gray. “Meanwhile, we can’t even question, make a joke, then we’re banned on platforms if we do that.”
Gray took to Twitter to taunt YouTube after his high-profile media appearance, writing: “They really let a far right rap artist get on Glenn beck. What is going on? This is CRAZY! Thanks YouTube! Thanks for banning my video from your commie platform!”
Gray was also profiled in the New Yorker magazine back in 2019, claiming he used to support Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders — before realizing he was a fan of Trump.
Meanwhile, his new track isn’t the only anti-Biden song to shoot up the charts.
Another track, also titled “Lets Go Brandon,” is now sitting at No. 2 on iTunes. The song was composed by rapper Loza Alexander in the aftermath of the NBC-NASCAR scandal.
“Let’s go Brandon/ You know what they really sayin’ though,” the chorus of that song states.
Gray believes the fact that his song shot up the charts alongside Alexander’s track is proof that the conservative culture is in ascendance.
“I feel like this is what’s coming,” he told The Post. “I hope record labels are scared. I don’t need a record label. We’re coming and the culture will change, and I hope they [ the left] are scared.”
Alexander’s song was still available on YouTube at the time of publication.
